geraldjones_getpublishedBring your most perplexing questions about writing and self-publishing to this on-location recording of an hour-long GetPublished! Radio episode. Since its launch last April Fool’s Day, GetPublished! has gained listenership steadily. The show is now available as a podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, Feedburner, TuneIn, Libsyn, and RSS feeds.

The show is also carried on iHeartRadio, which has an audience of 85 million, and on the Public Radio Exchange (PRX), which distributes to NPR broadcast radio stations nationwide.

GetPublished! announcer Bill Navarro quips that host Gerald Everett Jones has the answers – because he’s already made the mistakes himself. So, bring your questions to this recording session, step up to the mic, and challenge him on the air! Also calling him out will be the show’s new, we’ll-see-about-that Millennial co-host, Cheyenne Cockrell.

Gerald and Cheyenne will be joined by some special guests who will bring their own surprises.

Members of our team will do short Facebook video and social media teasers and the Podcast release should be later that day or the following morning on iHeartRadio and PRX.

About the host

Gerald Everett Jones is a freelance writer. Bonfire of the Vanderbilts, about an art scandal in 1890s’ Paris, is his sixth novel.

Before concentrating primarily on fiction, he authored, coauthored, or ghost-wrote more than thirty business and technical books, including How to Lie with Charts. That book has become a classic for college-level courses in business math, and Jones has conducted seminars on the topic of honesty in financial presentations.

He expounded on his notions of male-centered humor in his collection of short stories, Boychik Lit, which includes an essay in which he nominates novelist and poet Peter De Vries as the father of the genre. Jones authored the boychik-lit series of Rollo Hemphill’s comic misadventures: My Inflatable Friend, Rubber Babes, and Farnsworth’s Revenge. His next novel was Mr. Ballpoint, a father-son comedy based on the true story of the Pen Wars of 1945. Christmas Karma is his homage to Anne Tyler, about a dysfunctional Pasadena family that has to arrange a funeral and cope with uninvited guests during the holidays. His screenplay for Christmas Karma was recently featured in a WGA Diversity showcase.

Jones is a member of the Writers Guild of America, the Dramatists Guild, Women’s National Book Association, and Film Independent (FIND), as well as a director of IWOSC. He holds a Bachelor of Arts with Honors from the College of Letters, Wesleyan University, where he studied under novelists Peter Boynton (Stone Island), F.D. Reeve (The Red Machines), and Jerzy Kozinski (The Painted Bird, Being There).
